Opportunities for Junior Members
Each year at the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), there are multiple scholarships available to junior Angus members who plan to pursue a post-secondary education. Last year, organizations such as the Angus Foundation, Certified Angus Beef ® and the American Angus Auxiliary awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships to deserving junior members.
To apply for scholarships, you must be a senior in high school and plan to enroll in college in the fall, or be currently enrolled at a college or university. Detailed information on the scholarships and downloadable application forms are available at www.njaa.info. Deadline for the scholarship application is May 1.
The National Junior Recognition Program for Bronze, Silver and Gold awards, as it is commonly known, recognizes juniors for their hard work in producing and showing Angus cattle and participating in contests, leadership programs and other activities offered by the American Angus Association and the National Junior Angus Association.
The Gold level can only be obtained during your final year of junior membership, and you must have received both your Bronze and Silver awards prior to the start of that calendar year to be eligible. Bronze and Silver awards can be applied for at any time, but the Gold Award application must be submitted to the Junior Activities Department of the American Angus Association by May 1.
If you had the opportunity to make more money, you would, wouldn’t you? Well the AngusSourceSM program program is designed to help make you, Angus producers, more money by increasing the demand for Angus genetics. It will also help your customers make more money by differentiating their Angus feeder cattle from other black-hided cattle. In order to qualify for the program, the cattle must be sired by a registered Angus bull, the cattle have to be enrolled by the ranch on which they were born, and the cattle’s age must be known, including both month and year.
The good news is that it is as easy as 1, 2, 3. First, producers have to enroll in the Beef Improvement Records (BIR) with the American Angus Association and agree to follow all of the rules of the AngusSource program. Next, they have to enroll the cattle. They need to choose what type of tag they want. They have the option of either a visual tag that costs $1 or an RFID tag that costs $3.25. A document is created for all AngusSource program cattle listing the genetics, source, group age, sale location and date, average weight, and management information (vaccination info, past groups’ harvest data) for the set of enrolled cattle. This document is stored electronically by the American Angus Association. The documents can be printed and used as marketing tools to potential buyers, livestock auctions, or for sale book inserts.
AngusSourceSM provides more information to ensure producers are getting paid for what they are producing and ensuring buyers are getting what they are paying for – Angus.
We also encourage our members to become active in the National Junior Angus Association. Visit www.njaa.info for information!
